Last Appearance

Minnie the Moocher

Betty Boop's strict Jewish parents make only one appearance, in the cartoon Minnie the Moocher. Betty's parents are all over her case, hassling her because she will not eat her sauerbaten, so Betty runs away from home with Bimbo to get away from her parents - only to return spooked by Minnie the Moocher. Betty Boop's mother and father are never seen again throughout the whole Betty Boop series.

Quotes

  • Mr. Boop: "I won't have it, I won't have it!" (Minnie the Moocher)
  • Mrs. Boop: "Not particularly, but you're going to sing it anyway." (Hurray For Betty Boop)
  • Mr. Boop: "Are you outta your mind Betty? A woman president? That's worse than women playing sports!" (Hurray For Betty Boop)

Mrs. Boop

BettyBoopMotherMom

Betty's mother resembles a fatter version of Betty. Her hair is in a neat bun and she also sports the same jewelry as Betty.   However, in a photograph seen in Betty Boop's home, Betty's mother is depicted as looking exactly like her daughter only slightly older, wearing a scarf and glasses.  She appears in Hurray for Betty Boop, where she is voiced by Victoria D'Orazi. There she listens to her husband Mr Boop rant to Betty about women, telling his daughter that a woman cannot be president.  


Mr. Boop

Benny Boop

Betty Boop's father forces Betty to eat the food set out for her and ends up losing his temper, to which Betty replies "Oh Papa..." and runs away. He then can be seen morphing into a phonograph. In Snow White, he is supposedly married to the Wicked Queen.  In Hurray for Betty Boop, Betty tells her father that she wants to be woman president of the United States of America, which angers Mr Boop, who then tells her to listen to his song.  After he finishes singing, Betty tells the audience that her Papa thinks women are only good for scrubbing floors and having babies, and states that he does not realize that the Statue of Liberty is a woman. Betty then adds that she cannot take it any longer and decides to leave home and show her father that a woman can do anything a man can, then heads over to Grampy's place.

Trivia

  • Betty Boop's parents were first mentioned in the 1931 Talkartoon Minding the Baby; Betty states that Papa's gone away to business and Mama's gone out to the store. They are referenced but are not seen.
  • Betty might not get on with her parents, as they are never seen or referenced throughout the whole series.
  • They are also the parents of Billy Boop and Bubby Boop.
  • Betty must have a brother or sister, due to the fact that she has a nephew by the name of Junior and her 12 year old cousin Buzzy Boop.
  • Betty Boop's family relations are never 100% specified.
  • Betty Boop's father was to make a appearance in the scrapped "Betty Boop MGM Zanuck" film as Betty's estranged father, and was even given a name, "Benny Boop" but the plans for the movie were scrapped.
  • Betty's mother is referenced in the Betty Boop cartoon entitled Snow White, where Betty sings "Always in the way...I can never play! My own Mama would never say, I'm always in the way". Which indicates that Betty had a good relationship with her mother.
  • When Bimbo asks Betty if he may go along with her in Dizzy Red Riding Hood, she replies "My mother wouldn't want you to!"
  • One of the reasons for Betty's strained relationship with her parents (mostly her father) is because Betty doesn't follow the strict Jewish sects.
